Better is redefining homeownership and making it simpler, faster—and most importantly—more accessible for everyone. We leverage technology and expertise to find ways that we can make the homebuying journey more approachable and understandable.

  • Right now we’re funding $1 billion in home loans per month

  • We’ve funded over $9 billion in loans and $1 billion in insurance

  • We ranked #11 on Fortune’s Best Places to Work in Financial Services 2020

  • Our Founder and CEO was named in Comparably's Top 25 CEOs for Diversity

  • We were listed to Forbes’ FinTech 50 2020

  • And #964 on Inc.’s 2019 “5000 Fastest-Growing Companies”

  • We’ve secured over $254 million from our investors to date

Our company is made up of driven, passionate people who bring their unique backgrounds and perspectives to everything we do and we are committed to fostering diversity, multiculturalism, and inclusion. We see the perspectives that each person brings and a diverse workforce as essential for individual and collective success. We believe it’s important to foster a company culture that encourages curiosity and passion—from employee resource groups and learning opportunities to team outings and community outreach.

A Better opportunity:

We are looking for a Recruiting Coordinator to help our Talent Acquisition Executive Recruitment team. In this role, you will engage directly with internal leadership and external stakeholders to facilitate a smooth hiring process and provide an excellent candidate experience. You will develop a deep understanding of the full cycle recruiting process and have the opportunity to take on more responsibility over time as you come to recognize the nuances of building and maintaining great teams. Success in this role requires a high degree of organization, strong communication skills, creative thinking and the ability to maintain composure in a fast-paced environment.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Maintain organization of our Applicant Tracking System (Greenhouse)

  • Manage and monitor all candidate communication; onsite visits and correspondence

  • Execute onsite interviews for candidates

  • Assist in planning external recruiting events (career fairs, hiring events etc.)

  • Recommend and implement improvements to hiring process, both for internal stakeholders and candidates

  • Conduct reference calls and work with internal teams to facilitate offer letters and background checks

About You:

  • Experience working closely with or directly supporting executive level leadership

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

  • Ability to work with a variety of people

  • Exemplary organizational skills and attention to detail

  • High personal integrity and ability to exhibit a high level of confidentiality

  • Ability to multitask, manage priorities, and anticipate potential problems before they arise

  • 2-3 years in a recruiting coordination or similar position

The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.

  • We do what’s in the best interest of the consumer, not ourselves

  • We have growth mindsets, not fixed ones

  • We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials

  • We act like owners, not just employees

  • We work to find answers on our own, not wait for them to be given to us

  • We optimize for mission, not ego

Our mission speaks for itself—we continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We’ve recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.
